Borrowed a truck from my mom's "fleet" while mine is in the shop. '04 special order, bone stock, 192,000 miles. It's been sitting in a barn for several months and smells like cat ****, but it runs. new battery, some gas, air, and a quick rinse later I'm good to go. you'd never guess this truck has been hauling horses and baling equipment since day 1.




her special order '19 is under the tarp. got 7 fords to choose from at her place, haha (she loves 4x4 f150's and 60's mustangs)

decided to try a different rumble under the truck. stock cats, stock resonator, no muffler replaces the dual glasspacks and dumps. still need to finish up hangers, smooth out that last cut, and paint it hi-temp satin black



Dual glasspacks w/ dumps before axle: sounds decent, in cab drone is horrible

no muffler, stock exit: i can barely hear it inside. not sure of outside, no one else drives my truck

no muffler, dump after axle: i'll find out on the drive home from work today

Looking for an update on the drone. I asked in the other thread but thought I’d check out the build thread.

I'll update here so i dont muddy up the other thread....

with the current setup, drone is back, around 1800 rpms. no where near as bad as before though. it "feels" further back... before i felt the drone in my damn skull, now its behind me (if that makes sense).

this is town/country driving. haven't taken it on the highway yet.

normal driving, in cab volume is less than previous setup, but still noticeable.

all hell breaks loose under full throttle, love the sound. got that "raspy-ness" i wanted more of.


i may add a short resonator tip after i get some miles in, havent decided yet.







oh, and congrats for being the first person to post in my build thread in almost 4 years, haha.

Thanks. Just to be clear, your setup isn’t stock? You don’t have a muffler or resonator correct?

no muffler, still have stock resonator.


just noticed something a little different. i need to lower my 1-2 shift speed on my programmer. engine seems to rev higher/faster, so i get a nice whiplash when it hits the rev limiter (before, i had it just right with a little chirp with a peak shift)
